Gems from the Town Code:

If you see one of these ratites running around, no need to inform the authorities, as they are permitted under Town Code sections 6-1 and 6-5, so long as they are behind a fence. Not like a live hog, which is not allowed to be within 100 yards of a Town street.

That being said, it is unlikely that one would see these at all, as the magnificent elephant birds of Madagascar have been extinct since approximately 120 AD, though they grew to be 9 feet tall.

(There must be an excellent story behind this.)

Hello, Haymarket! Did you know?

We are proud to share information about the Share the Warmth Project:

Everyone can use a little help now and then, and it is easy to forget that winter's cold can mean great hardship for those in our area. New, or clean and gently used items for children and adults (both male and female) are being collected at 3 locations over the course of the winter.

Please feel free to share this flyer, and contact Donna at the Haymarket Police Department for more information ([email protected], or by phone at 703-753-2700).
